At HelpAge USA, we support older people who want to make a difference in their communities. Learn more about Friendship Bench DC, our new program that addresses the scarcity of mental health resources by training older people to provide a listening ear to those in need.

Making healthy, secure, and hopeful lives a reality.

Throughout low and middle-income countries and the United States, we champion the dignity and potential of older people. We work with HelpAge Global Network partners in over 80 countries to provide disaster assistance, facilitate healthcare, help end discrimination and violence, develop pathways to income security, conduct research, and advocate for the inclusion of older people in policies and programs that typically overlook them.

Our vision is a better world to grow old in.

We’re a nonprofit that sees a world in which the contributions of older people are recognized, and there is no age limit on the opportunity for a healthy, safe, and secure life.
